RESULTS Austin celebrates

Success for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TUberculosis and Malaria

On September 16, 2016 in Montreal, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau hosted a successful pledging conference for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Pledges from the private sector and governments worldwide totaled $13 billion. These funds will enable the Global Fund to save 8 million lives and prevent 300 million new infections in the next 3 years alone. Leading the way, the U.S. promised to match $1 for every $2 contributed by other donors up to a maximum of $4.3 billion.

Progress for the Maternal and Child Survival

RESULTS continues to push for passage of the Reach Every Mother and Child Act. The bill proposes reforms with the bold goal of saving the lives of 15 million children and of 600,000 mothers by 2020.  As of October 1st, the House bill has 201 bipartisan cosponsors.  Now now we are intensifying our efforts by urging the cosponsors to encourage the chairman of that committee to move the bill forward.
